Nice nature trail. Wide open easy to follow trail. Flowers, butterflies, heron and frogs are just a few things you can see during the walk. A large section of the trail is a wooden deck path. Several small water areas along the path. Approach quietly and you may see a heron. We saw three on the walk.
